This has been a firm favourite in our house ever since we reviewed it last year. We love it so much, the boys even took it to Spain with them in the summer so they could play it with their friends. Each player draws 10 answer cards. The player with the funniest responses wins the round. The person who asks the question gets to choose the funniest response and the first to win 7 rounds is crowned the winner!
